TCU vs Texas Prediction & Pick
TCU's offensive production is impressive, ranking among the best in the country with 42 points per game and 493 yards per game at 7.0 yards per play. The attack is balanced as well with 224 rushing yards per game and 269 passing yards per game.
The Horned Frogs' defense is below average, however, allowing 409 yards per game and 5.4 yards per play. Texas' defense has been a bit better at 381 yards per game and 4.9 yards per play, but the Longhorns have allowed 5.9 yards per play over their last three contests.
TCU's offense is led by QB Max Duggan, who is by far the league's most efficient quarterback with 273 passing yards per game and a 24:2 TD/INT ratio this season.
Meanwhile, Texas may pound the ground more in this contest with the Big 12's leading rusher Bijan Robinson, who's averaging 125 rushing yards per game. But TCU does have the league's No. 2 rusher in Kendre Miller at 112 rushing yards per game, who also runs for a league-high 6.6 yards per attempt.
This game projects to be close and high-scoring, but we expect the Longhorns to prevail at home.
Final Score Prediction: Texas: 40 | TCU: 33

TCU vs Texas Best Bet
Veteran coach Sonny Dykes has catapulted the Horned Frogs to the top of the Big 12 in his first season in Fort Worth. Duggan continues to fire live ammunition, leading a potent offense that typically finishes games strong.
The Longhorns have an impressive offense as well and neither defense stands out, so expect a shootout in Texas that hits the Over.
Bet: Over 64.5 Points (-115)
